Choosing the right diamond can be a difficult decison to make for many people. Especially if you are buying a diamond as a surprise. Here is a rough guide of the different shapes available at Arlington & Co. which are incorporated into our jewellery.

Round Brilliant Cut Diamonds: The most popular shape of diamond. This diamond is cut to maximise the brilliance and fire of a diamond.

Princess Cut Diamond: Square in shape with more facets than the round brilliant cut normally. Second in popularity and is a relatively new cut created in the 1960s.

Marquise Cut: The perfect shape for maximising carat weight due to the long length of this cut. Is also a good shape for small or large hands.

Cushion Cut: Named due to the shape of this stone – pillow shaped. It is available in square or oblong shapes with soft rounded edges.

Emerald Cut: Oblong in shape with step cuts, the nature of the cut of this diamond showcase beautifully the colour and clarity of each gleaming stone.

Radiant Cut: A unique style of cut, radiant cut diamonds feature uniquely trimmed corners which combines the lines of an emerald cut with the brilliance of a round diamond.

Pear Shape: Combining the marquise and round brilliant cut shapes this tear drop shape diamond can give hands a slimmer appearance and are also beautiful incorporated into pendants.

Oval Shape: An elongated round brilliant cut diamond this elegant diamond shape lends itself to long slender fingers and has a beautiful bow tie effect to the centre.
